Baku on Grand Prix weekend inspires a dreamy mash-up of Paris romance and Arabian nights with David Guetta’s ‘Dangerous’ playing in the background, according to Marie Misso, who went to the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Here’s her report.
A beautiful coastal city on the Caspian Sea, Baku is a place that I may have never known or visited if not for Formula One. Enjoy a stroll through the old town of cobbled lanes and buildings dating back to the 12th century with the backdrop of the Flame Towers (a trio of skyscrapers up to a height of 182m), which are spectacular at every hour of the day and night, and at every angle. Even the museums are works of art before you even step inside, especially carpet roll-shaped Azerbaijan Carpet Museum (close to the Asneft area of the circuit) and the uber-modern Heydar Aliyev Center.
